T-dap booster

Just wanted to share some information...be sure to keep your kiddos t-dap boosters up to date. Here's why...

Ryan had ear surgery 2 weeks ago (supposed to be a fairly simple thing). He developed chondritis in the ear cartilage and had to spend 3 days at the hospital. He started coughing while at the hospital. One week later, the GP said he had whooping cough (pertussis) YES, WHOOPING COUGH. His t-dap booster is due NEXT MONTH and he picked it up somewhere!!! It has been an awful 2 weeks and we are really worried he messed the ear surgery up with all the coughing ... fingers crossed!!!

Unfortunately whooping cough is a fairly common occurrence in Ibd kids on Mtx, 6-mp or biologics .
They also don't tend present classically due to having some immunity from the previous boosters.
Hope he gets better
Glad you caught it

Thanks ladies! The coughing is MUCH better. We won't know about the ear for about 2 weeks...keeping our fingers crossed that all the coughing didn't undo anything. You are right...no way to start the summer. And to add to it, we are supposed to start Humira on Wednesday But he is very much looking forward to Camp Oasis next month and band camp (who looks forward to band camp ?
